Earlier this week I had the privilege of attending a function at the Maidstone Club. It was one of those majestic weather days. sunny with pretty clouds on the horizon, nright blue skies and a rolling ocean. The breeze was lovely, the ocean looked gorgeous, and everything was perfect.
Once again, as I sat in the second floor ballroom eating my dinner and looking out over the golf course and saw the cars passing by on Further Lane, I thought about what a gift this was to our community. Here is a park-like setting, lovely undulating greens and beautiful ocean views, open for all of us to walk through, bike around, drive by and enjoy. It's like no other. Every other golf course I've ever seen has been surrounded by condos or homes and here this one is, open for all to enjoy. And the vistas that go right to the sea are like none others. Were it not for the club we'd be looking at hedges and houses, not ocean views.
I can only thank those who have made the decisions over the years at the Maidstone for making it a gift to the entire community.
